Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I noticed in a reflection off the vehicle in front of me that when I turned my turn signal (doesn't matter which one, right or left), that my day time running lights go off. This started out as only happening on occasion and then proceed to get worse. By February 17, 2003, the day time running lights would go off every time I used my turn signal. I took my vehicle into the dealer on that date and was informed after they had contacted GM, that it was normal for it to do that. I bought the truck in July of 2002 and it had not done it up until that point, I know because I have followed my husband's vehicle several times and he would have noticed it. Anyway, the dealer showed me in the owners manual where it says some vehicles may do this and they refused to do anything about it although it had never done this before. I find this unsafe as it would be very distracting to oncoming drivers plus the fact that I worry something is wrong in the electrical system.
